La Vuelta 14 - Robert Gesink: "My legs were so cramped that I could not sit anymore, but I had enough."

Robert Gesink:
“I'm very happy, I was so close on Covadonga, but Quintana beat me. I definitely wanted to take another chance, and that was today. It’s really beautiful that I could finish it off. We went [in a break-away] with a large group of strong riders. I was not sure I could beat all these riders. I kept fighting and I gave everything. My legs were so cramped that I could not sit anymore, but I had enough. I'm happy. This is my first stage win in a grand tour after years of racing. It’s perfect timing too because I wasn’t really having a good season. Now I feel that I'm truly recovered from my crash in Switzerland."
